SKU: BrGSCOrg Category:

(a.k.a. Early Italian Green Sprouting) (Brassica oleracea) 58-90 days from transplant.       This Organic broccoli variety was brought to America from Italy in the late 1800s. Organic Green Sprouting Calabrese Broccoli is a true mainstay with gardeners. Heads grow to 5-8″, with a central head, bearing many side shoots. Does well in cool climates, extremely frost tolerant. Will continue to grow side shoots throughout season, even after main head is cut. Very flavorful, and rich in vitamins.

Planting Instructions for Organic Green Sprouting Calabrese Broccoli Seeds

Heirloom / Open Pollinated Organic Broccoli lacks tolerance to extreme heat. Direct seed Organic Broccoli in the spring or start indoors 4-6 wks before the last frost. Plant seeds ½” deep in full sun, 4-6″ apart, in rows 18-36″ apart, when outdoor temperatures have reached 50°F. Germination usually occurs in 5-17 days in soil 55-75°F. Organic Heirloom Broccoli plants should be thinned to 12-24″. Harvest center head before flower buds open, then harvest side shoots frequently for continuous production.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.  – Edmund Burke

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
